What do you get when a game designer has a love for vintage cartoons…. CUPHEAD bitch! This outstandingly brilliant XBOX ONE game has taking things into the truly innovative direction. The game house MDHR has created a game that looks like something your great grandparents watched on television. They’ve even gone as far as to use actual cells and inking by hand (whatever that means), to create the vintage animated 1930’s look. The game also features live recorded jazz. I feel all like Steve Buscemi’s character in Ghost World right now. I am all about this game and I don’t own a game system. but God as my witness, I will own this game and if need be, it’ll be the only thing I play in that XBOX.
According to The Daily Dot CUPHEAD is all apart of a new initiative by XBOX ,to step up their originality game and try to harness a new demographic. I can’t agree more. There are numerous things that they could be doing with these machines instead of serving up the same things. The processors in those game units are limitless and it’s a shame cause most of the more creative stuff, like CUPHEAD, wouldn’t even need a processor that strong. We’ve almost gone beyond what we need. Check out the trailer below. It’s awesome!!!
If there ever was a reason to spark one up and play a video game….THIS IS IT!!!!
The results are in and yes, the Phoenix Comic Con is a force to be reckoned with. This year featured booths by Dark Horse Comics, Boom Studios, Archaia Entertainment and many many more. In addition to that, there are a ton of panels and signings, from some heavy hitters in Hollywood and the comic book world, alike. I, unfortunately, won’t be doing the whole weekend, but I did manage to checkout a few of the booths and take some pictures of some really “well-dressed” and “totally committed” cosplayers this year.
By the way, the uber-popular anime, Attack on Titan, is clearly a hit this year. Everywhere I turned ,there was another member of the illustrious “Survey Corps”, the army responsible for protecting humans from these enormous monsters. Anyway, you’ll see a few of them in this album, along with images of Star Wars people, Resident Evil so on and so forth. I hope you enjoy them and if you get a chance please go the the Phoenix Comic Con, this year is going to be epic!
